Zimbabwe People First party says it will close the Zimbabwean embassy in South Africa if efforts to get Zimbabweans living in the diaspora to vote from their countries of residence fail. Speaking on South African E News Channel, the party’s South Africa Provincial Coordinator Lawrence Mavhaire said that if the Zimbabwean Government fails to uphold the constitutional provision giving every Zimbabwean a right to vote regardless of where they are, Zimbabweans living in South Africa will march to the embassy and close it down. “If we are not granted our right to vote we will march to the embassy and force it to close down because it will not be serving any purpose,” said Mavhaire. The South African based members of the party will march to the Zimbabwean embassy to present a petition signed by Zimbabweans based in South Africa demanding that they be given a right to vote from South Africa in the next election.
